Cloud Foundry for Developers (CFFD)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

About this Course

This course provides developers with a comprehensive, hands on introduction to the Cloud Foundry platform. Presentations introduce foundational concepts, principles and best practices in Cloud Foundry and cloud native architecture. Exercises provide students with practical, hands-on experiences critical to developer success. Students will use Cloud Foundry to build, deploy and manage a cloud native microservice solution. The course directly aligns with the new Cloud Foundry Foundation Developer Certification program and will substantially increase students' ability to become certified.

Who should attend

Developers that are new to Cloud Foundry or who want to broaden their Cloud Foundry skillset and improve their chances of becoming a Cloud Foundry Certified Developer.

Class Prerequisites

A student should be an active developer, comfortable using command line tools and familiar with basic cloud computing concepts. Familiarity with Java/Spring, Node.js and/or Ruby is a plus.

What You Will Learn

This course is designed to equip developers with a valuable, marketable skill set across all Cloud Foundry certified platform distributions. You will learn how to use Cloud Foundry to build, deploy and manage a cloud native microservice solution. The course has extensive labs so developers can learn by doing. Some focus areas include:

  • Cloud Foundry architecture: what are the major components and how do they fit together so support developers?
  • Applications and Services: what are best practices for deploying, scaling and managing applications? How are services made available and used by Cloud Foundry applications?
  • Cloud Native design: how does Cloud Foundry enable creation of microservices, and support 12 factor application design principles?
  • Troubleshooting & Debugging: Using Cloud Foundry’s features to diagnose and fix issues in applications and environment configuration.

Outline: Cloud Foundry for Developers (CFFD)

  • CF Motivators: Industry changes which have led to the cloud-native movement and the role of Cloud Foundry in the enterprise.
  • Basic Definitions & Core Themes: Established a basic lexicon around simple Cloud Foundry concepts like targets, orgs, spaces, users and roles. Scope is just enough to login and target.
  • Technical Overview: The main technical components/areas of Cloud Foundry, from the perspective of a developer interacting with the platform.
  • Applications & Routing: How Cloud Foundry stages and runs applications, and how Cloud Foundry routes traffic to those applications. The routing topic will cover both HTTP(s) and TCP routing.
  • Logging & Metrics: The logging and metrics system in Cloud Foundry, including: the relevant components, how applications should log and how users interact with the logging system.
  • Resiliency: Cloud Foundry’s built in availability and resiliency features.
  • Services: How Cloud Foundry works with backing services, including: the marketplace, services, service instances and service bindings.
  • Troubleshooting & Debugging: Using Cloud Foundry’s features to diagnose and fix issues in applications and environment configuration.
  • Extending the Platform: Extending the capabilities of Cloud Foundry.
  • Cloud Native Best Practices: Best practices for designing, deploying and managing applications, including the 12 factors.
  • Security: Using Cloud Foundry to secure applications and endpoints.
  • CI/CD & Automation: Best practices in automating the lifecycle of applications.
